BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the managing director of a start-up medicinal product procurement company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Blueberry Consultants?

I hired Blueberry Consultants to design and build a product that integrates healthcare item ordering across multiple user and supplier systems.

What were your goals for this project?

We were hoping to complete the project in six months. Afterward, we wanted an immediate rollout to healthcare professionals, product users, and suppliers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Blueberry Consultants through internet searches and phone conversations with a number of vendors. This eventually led to face-to-face meetings and project discussions.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Blueberry Consultants designed the software product based on my requirements and guidance. Their team also offered advice on areas of development and tweaks to the overall build plan.

What was the team composition?

During initial discussions, we spoke with their managing director and senior project managers. Later, we started communicating with a single senior project manager who had experience with niche areas of software development.

The project included several integrations across a number of platforms. In some cases, interactions with outdated technologies required support from outside specialists.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our business is entirely dependent on the software that Blueberry Consultants developed. Their work has allowed our company to grow, and many Irish healthcare professionals use their platform daily.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Blueberry Consultants placed a strong emphasis on outlining the project in great detail prior to development. This reduced the number of work hours and allowed for a smoother, steadier build. Due to their accurate project planning, they met every milestone.

Blueberry Consultants used a ticketing system to manage project tasks and provide ongoing reports. We held project meetings on a regular basis to ensure that everything was proceeding as planned.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were open to our initial plan while also providing alternative points of view. Their recommendations proved to be vital for improving the overall development process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There’s nothing that I can add in terms of areas for improvement.
